As the service swears to apprehend killers, a slain Immigration officer is promoted posthumously.

Michael Otoo, a 26-year-old Immigration officer who was shot and killed by unknown perpetrators, has been elevated from AICO1 to ICO posthumously. 

The Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) declared this when it paid a visit to the bereaved family. The promotion is in memory of Michael Otoo, a police officer who died in the line of duty. 

Smugglers are accused of attacking and killing the officer in Kokoligu, a community in the Upper West Region between Nandom and Hamile. 

The Ghana Police Service has dispatched crime scene investigators, Defense Intelligence operatives, and other security officers to the Upper West Region to look into the circumstances surrounding the death of AICO Michael Otoo.

Superintendent Michael Amoako Atta, GIS's Head of Public Affairs, promised that the culprits will be apprehended during a visit to the deceased's family home. 

"Because the officer died in active service while protecting the country, the Comptroller General has directed that this is a tremendous honor to pay tribute to the departed," said the Comptroller General. The BNI, the Bureau of National Investigations, and other law enforcement organizations are in the neighborhood looking for the criminals so they can face the consequences. "Justice will be served by the leadership of the Immigration Service."

"The body of the officer, which had gunshot holes, was hidden by his assailants under a bridge," the Nandom Command of the Immigration Service said after the incident, "while his motorbike and helmet were located some 100 meters distant from the remains." 

The police investigation into the crime has already begun. 

Meanwhile, the Service has urged its officers to remain calm as the police and other security authorities investigate the incident. 

"I am heartbroken about my son's death. He was the only thing I had and the only person I could count on. Elizabeth Otoo, the deceased's mother, eulogized her son.
